Niema Cameron Dead in Sacramento Hit-and-Run Crash on East Lawn Memorial Park
SACRAMENTO, CA (January 21, 2019) – A woman sufferd fatal injuries following a hit-and-run crash in East Sacramento on Friday, January 18.
The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased victim on Saturday as 29-year-old Niema Cameron.
A passerby found Cameron lying in the driveway of the East Lawn Memorial Park at around 6 a.m. near Folsom Boulevard and 46th Street, according to Sacramento police.
She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver who struck Cameron was nowhere to be found, the police said.
A tip from a delivery driver led the authorities to a damaged, gray Honda hybrid parked near 36th Street and Bret Harte Court in the Oak Park neighborhood.
The vehicle was unoccupied when officials found it, police stated.
The delivery driver, who did not want to be identified, told a local news source that he was in the neighborhood and saw the vehicle parked on the street with major front-end and passenger-side damage.
He said he took one look at the vehicle and thought that it may be connected to the hit-and-run on 46th and Folsom.
After taking a closer look, he said he found what looked like human flesh stuck in the front fender of the vehicle, so he called the police.
The vehicle was towed away shortly before 7 p.m. for investigators to process. By 8 p.m., police confirmed the Honda was the car involved in the hit-and-run incident.
According to the police, their investigation is ongoing and they are still trying to find out who was the driver at the time of the collision.
Any person with information about the crash is asked to contact Sacramento police.
